What I was eating, I don't know. Bags of candy for starters. Now, I have been on the diet for one week - yeah! And I am still hungry in between meals, mostly in the afternoon, but I am starting to get the hang of this "dieting" thing we are all doing here. <BR> <BR> Happy Monday! <img src="http://photos-ak.sparkpeople.com/nw/1/1/l11131862.jpg"> Mon, 4 Oct 2010 20:15:28 EST Now is my Time http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=3668422 Its amazing what sort of summer I had this year. It was filled with a fun trip to Disneyland, and lots of health problems. I have been dealing with Migraines and Heartburn, which led to Stomach Ulcers, which led to Depression and more Migraines. <BR> <BR> I recently hit my low-point this past week, where I spent an entire day complaining and crying out all the pain. All the Negative Comments I had about my body size and how I feel lazy all the time; I got it all out. <BR> <BR> Today, Now, ... Fri, 24 Sep 2010 21:18:58 EST Sickness Can Happen http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=3495232 Today is August 2, and I have been on the diet for approximately 2 weeks. Last week I got sick and was on bed-rest for 4 days while only drinking fluids. I was not able to weigh myself so I am not sure how much weight I dropped last week. <BR> <BR> Since starting the program, I have lost 5 pounds. Yeah! <BR> <BR> I am not able to exercise right now, due to my getting sick, so I can't track my fitness. But I have been counting calories like crazy! When I am away from the computer, I remember...

I reside in California. Sun, 18 Jul 2010 01:01:33 EST Day 1 http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=3442761 Today I officially started my new diet. I joined Spark People about 1 week ago to get familiar with all the amazing tools and fun stuff. For now I am tracking what I eat, but I hope to actually plan my meals for the week starting in August. <BR> <BR> My family of 3 is filled with very picky eaters. So I told my fiance that I will always have spaghetti and meatballs on hand for him, and our daughter pretty much eats anything, as long as you can add a little spice to it. For myself, I love ve... Sun, 18 Jul 2010 01:00:04 EST A Few Tricks http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=3435679 I recently blogged the following to a beautiful mom who needed support. Hopefully it will help you too! <BR> <BR> A few tricks that I have found helpful in not overeating: <BR> <BR> 1. Dump all the bad stuff. The cake, the ice cream, the pudding. Anything that is not part of your healthy diet needs to go.
